Becca Thorpe has uprooted her life and escaped to the beach. Now's her chance to get away from city living, throw caution to the ocean winds, and live in the moment. Especially if the moment includes the deliciously sexy surfer she meets shortly after arriving in Lucky Harbor. Something about the dark intensity of Sam's eyes and the thrill she gets at his touch convinces her to stay awhile.
Boatbuilder and investment genius Sam Brody is a self-made man who knows how dangerous it can be to mix business and pleasure. But he can't resist offering Becca a job just to hear her laugh and have her near. Yet when her brother comes to town asking for help, will he tempt her back to her glamorous life in the city? Or do Sam and little Lucky Harbor have a chance to win Becca's heart?

If you have read my blog before you probably already know I’m a big Jill Shalvis fan and read all of her books. Obviously I couldn’t not read It’s In His Kiss!
This book is all about Becca and Sam. After having to face some serious problems Becca decide she needs a change and that’s how she ends up in Lucky Harbor, loving and working for three of the hottest single men in town.
Sam doesn’t want to mix business and pleasure but he cannot resist Becca, especially when he realizes there’s more to her than what meets the eye.
As always Jill Shalvi’s characters are great and the chemistry between them is palpable.
Sam is a wonderful character.  He’s definitely an alpha male. He’s quiet and might seem a little grumpy but he can also be quite fun and loving. He’s protective of the ones he loves and even though he wants to seem like he doesn’t worry about much, he cannot help caring about those around him.
Becca is a good character as well. I love that she is so strong and determined even if her life hasn’t been easy. The fact she’s not in the least intimidated by Sam when so many other people are.  She might have some issues but she has decided to move on with her life and find a way to be happy.
As I said before, the chemistry between this too is great. They are a good couple that somehow balances each other. Becca needed Sam’s strength and he definitely needed her to bring him out of his shell a little.
Plotwise, the story develops quickly allowing the reader to know what’s going on in Lucky Harbor and in the lives of some new characters and of other we already now.
All in all, I quite enjoyed It’s in His Kiss. This is a fun, fast paced book that’s perfect for when you need of a good contemporary romance.
